As expected, the New York Jets have released Cornerback Antonio Cromartie. Cro started his second journey with the Jets after playing in Arizona under current Jets head coach Todd Bowles.

“This past season “Cro” had 33 tackles, two tackles for loss, both against Jacksonville, a fumble recovery in the season opener against Cleveland, and a team-leading 16 pass defenses, three coming against Tennessee. “Cro” also had the most kickoff returns for the Jets, 15 in all for a 25.1-yard return average.

Cromartie, who began his NFL career as the Chargers’ first-round choice, 19th overall, in ’06, has 34 career interceptions in the regular season and playoffs, 13 of them coming as a member of the Jets. He made 78 regular-season and three postseason starts for the Jets,” reports Randy Lange.

Cromartie was one year into a four-year $32 million contract, including a non-guaranteed $8 million.

My passion as a Jets fan led me to be a writer for JetNation.com. Social media then grew to be a popular way for fans to see Jets news. We knew we needed to use those outlets to reach different audiences who were Jets fans. I then became the social media manager for JetNation.com.
